We came for lunch after church. We were seated quickly at a table where it was actually quiet enough for conversation! The food was quite good. I ordinarily don't care much for salad dressing, but I enjoyed theirs. The atmosphere was pleasant and the service...More

Try The Sunday brunch! Lots of great choices including a luscious burger, red pepper and crab soup, eggs Benedict or grilled chicken salad. Finish it with a glass of wine or a Bakon Bloody. Josh in the bar is awesome!

Isabella's has potential but is apparently held back by laziness and shortcuts. We came for Sunday brunch. (We live in Roanoke, while my parents live in Charlottesville, and Lynchburg is about as close to the middle as we can get.) My wife did a quick...More

We were looking for a nice Italian meal while visiting Lynchburg and found a great one. The menu had a wide variety and all the food selections were excellent. I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for a nice Italian meal.
